Clarion, Iowa – From young to old.
One area community is coming together to bring different generations closer.
The 12th annual “Bridging the Gap” event was packed at the Clarion-GoldfieldMiddle School.
Seniors paired up with middle school staff and students and took part in activities from playing guitar to fixing a quick snack.
Eighth Grader, Lilian Swanson, says it’s an event to break the stereotype of kids being up to no good.
“Because we want them to know we’re not what they think we are and so we want them to get the idea of what we’re actually like,” said Swanson.
One director of the event says this year’s turnout is record-breaking in those that came out to participate in the fun.
Those attending were able to choose three activities to be involved in.
